H&H hosted its final online auction of 2019 on December 4, with 48 lots going under the virtual hammer. Variety was the order of the day, with consignments ranging from a 1915 Hupmobile Model HA Tourer to the wild 1976 custom Citroën ‘Indecision’ built by renowned car customiser Andy Saunders.
Despite the colder winter weather, it proved to be a particularly successful sale for traditional open-topped British sports cars. A 1960 A-specification Daimler SP250 ‘Dart’, which had been fully restored and treated to a few choice upgrades including extra B-specification chassis outriggers, matched its top estimate at £36,000. Elsewhere a 1976 Triumph Stag in Jasmine Yellow beat its £7000-£9000 estimate to sell for £10,125, while a couple of octagon classics did well too – a 1958 MGA 1500 roadster surpassed its lower estimate at £16,333, and a MGC roadster found a new home for a shade under £17,000.
Modern classics included a sub-£2000 1997 BMW 535i V8 and a very attractive 1997 Volkswagen Golf VR6 Highline with full history, which just beat its top estimate to sell for £5063. The most remarkable lot, however, had to be the aforementioned Citroën Indecision. Based on a 1976 Citroën CX Pallas, it looked just like it had been lifted from a 1950s sci-fi film set. At £16,875, it comfortably beat its lower estimate.
